As the Total Solution Provider in the Pacific NW, Highway Heavy Hauling (HWY) interactively engages with customers throughout the entire transportation process. Commencing engagement at the inquiry phase, when details are most important, HWY ensures even the toughest transportation challenges will be solved safely, efficiently and timely. This form of risk management coupled with knowledge of mandated regulations, industry guidelines, and company policies (monitored and enforced) along with the precise infrastructure to support customer requirements, has provided HWY with the flexibility to focus internally on critical areas such as the safe transport of your machinery. Integrating safety seamlessly with planning and logistics, has maximized customer trust, confidence and satisfaction.

    Experienced, trained and certified drivers proficient with sophisticated transport machinery, equipment, and correlating procedures and processes:
  • adhere to all Department of Transportation (DOT) rules & regulations
  • with safety the top priority, obey a stringent set of guidelines for cargo securement and transport, including loading/unloading
  • participate in continuous development & education (via Oregon Trucking Association)
  • provide a strong mix of strengths and capabilities

  • Safety records and driver log books are documented and continuously maintained and reviewed
  • Zero tolerance for drug and alcohol; all employees have been selected, screened and are actively re-screened (department of transportation supervisor trained)

HWY infrastructure is founded on total transparency and are devoted to building long term relationships by practicing honesty and mutual respect without deviation. HWY customers can expect the highest level of integrity from our entire HWY team with the kind of agility and flexibility that only a team of our size can offer (a large corporation simply can’t move as quickly as we can). Understanding the transport industry and how quickly changes can emerge, HWY leaders provide a voice within the community and actively participate in transportation boards:

  • Immersed in safety specific transportation boards
  • Consultative to the Motor Carrier Transportation Advisory Committee
  • Advisory to The Portland Freight Committee

We are truly confident in our drivers, care about the industry and strive to give our customers the best service possible
